Weight Distribution Diagram

Create a more stable ride for your tow vehicle and trailer with a weight distribution hitch. Adding spring bars to your towing system applies leverage, which transfers the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer, resulting in an even distribution of weight throughout. The result is a smooth, level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.


Selecting a Weight Distribution System

The tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight distribution system you should use. If the bars of the system you choose are rated too high for your setup, they will create a rigid ride, which can result in a bouncing trailer. If, on the other hand, the bars are not rated high enough, the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight, rendering it virtually useless.


To determine the proper weight rating for a weight distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight. Then add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. These two measurements make up the tongue weight rating for a weight distribution system.


Integrated Active Sway Control

The TruTrack weight distribution system works to stop trailer sway before it begins. This is achieved primarily thanks to the specially designed system head.


TruTrack Spring-Loaded Ball Bearings in Detents

On top of the trunnions, there are spring-loaded ball bearings that rest in detents built into the underside of the head. As you travel down the road normally, these ball bearings help to keep the trailer in a straight line by applying pressure inside these detents.


TruTrack Spring-Loaded Ball Bearings out of Detents

When sway occurs, the trunnions move inside the head, causing the ball bearings to come out of these detents. When this happens, the ball bearings ride along internal grooves in the head as they work to return to the detents to snap the trunnion back in place. This action effectively returns your trailer to center.


TruTrack Spring Bar Bracket

Additional sway control is created by the spring bar brackets. Most traditional weight distribution systems have spring bars that are suspended by chains. Although this ensures that the system is not so rigid as to create bounce in the trailer, it also permits a good deal of side-to-side play in the system. Allowing the spring bars to hang freely also minimizes the tension described earlier. This limits your system's ability to hold your trailer in line behind your tow vehicle.


Not only do the brackets on the TruTrack work to constantly hold your trailer in line, but they also supply friction to force it back into place should any sway occur. The concept is similar to the way in which an add-on friction sway control device functions. When each spring bar moves forward or backward, or side to side, it rubs along the bracket, creating friction. The resistance created by this action limits the movement of the spring bar, thus preventing further side-to-side movement of the trailer.


Head Tilt Adjustment

TruTrack Head Position

The TruTrack's unique head adjustment method sets it apart from traditional washer-style setups by taking the hassle and guesswork out of finding the correct tilt. The main drawback with the washer method stems from the need to add or remove washers to determine the proper tilt. So each time an adjustment is required the hitch head must be disassembled so that the washers can be either removed or stacked on, and then reassembled. Not only is this time consuming, but the trial and error necessary to determine the precise number of washers can be frustrating.


The TruTrack simplifies the entire process by giving you 5 preset adjustment points to choose from. As a result, you can quickly and conveniently achieve the proper tilt without ever needing to disassemble the head or keep track of washers. To fine-tune the system simply start out in Position 1, which is the lowest head tilt setting. This setting applies the least amount of tension to the spring bars. As you continue to adjust the head tilt, more tension will be applied to the spring bars. Work through the positions in order until the correct tilt setting is determined. Once your tow vehicle is level, use the oblong washers in conjunction with the shank bolts to secure the head to the shank in the desired position.


Forged Steel Spring Bars

The TruTrack's spring bars are made from forged steel, giving them a distinct advantage over typical cast steel bars. Forging is a process where thermal and mechanical energy are applied to the steel, resulting in a finished product that is more resilient to impacts and is stronger in terms of shear strength. Simply put, the TruTrack's spring bars do a superior job of helping to hold your trailer in line because of their added strength and durability.


Simple Spring Bar Setup

TruTrack Spring Bar Install

The support brackets of the TruTrack easily clamp onto your trailer frame to provide the attachment points for the weight distribution spring bars. To position the spring bars on the brackets during hookup, simply use the included snap-up lever to lift each bar onto an L-shaped bracket. Then secure the bars in place with the included L-pins and clips.

This product is well worth the money, I ordered it and the only problem was UPS totally destroyed the first shipment and about half the product was missing. etrailer was very helpful and sent another hitch out very quickly and had UPS pick up the damaged parts and return them no charge. I use it on my 2013 F-150 pulling a 8.5x20 show car trailer, the trailer would sway anytime a semi would pass on the freeway and made it sometimes a white knuckle ride. But after adding this product it calmed the problem down to just a slight nudge when one passes now it was and is well worth every penny I paid for it and customer service is great with etrailer. If your having any problems with sagging (not your pants) or sway this is the perfect product.

I set it up truck sagged little in back but all was good pulling once I got down the road about three miles rechecked and truck and trailer were level pulled from Kansas City to south easternmost border of Indiana and back with strong cross winds trailer pulled in line with truck and no swaying only thing was when truck passed on left would get a little sucked in towards it only four stars as th L brackets bent down and bars cut into the so I need replacement before I take my trip to and across Texas in couple weeks


Comments
I reached out to my contact at Curt, he told me the L brackets bending could be from different environmental items. If the vehicle turned too tight that could bend the brackets. If the vehicle was overloaded then the bars are doing extra work lifting the trailer and the rear of the vehicle transferring the weight to the brackets. Could be where the brackets are positioned on the trailer. If they are closer then 4 inches to the end this could cause problems.

Put a little time into setting up the hitch and measuring your tongue weight, and this hitch allows my 1/2 ton and trailer to ride level with no issues. Thanks etrailer for always being there to answer my questions!

The hitch is great. Easy to install with nice to follow directions. The only problem is with shipping the box was destroyed and there was parts hanging out of it but everything was there. The instructions were there but they were damaged but we could still read them. My only recommendation would be for a better shipping company.

They difference between our previous weight distributing hitch and the Curt TruTrack system is almost beyond description. The TruTrack has all but eliminated any stress / anxiousness when towing our RV. After purchasing this from etrailer.com, I was concerned that I may have picked the wrong weight class since our trailer is only +/- 5000lbs unloaded, but after factoring in the weight of the cargo in the front of the RV and the rear of the truck, it was pretty clear that the correct decision was made. Easy to install, simple to adjust, ease of maintenance and so much nicer when towing. My co-pilot is amazed that she can even take a nap when we travel...which was not the case with the old system.

Over all, Outstanding hitch system. Positive aspects: makes pulling my 29.5 foot 7600 lb trailer feel like a straight truck. Very stable. Makes it stable enough for my wife to be comfortable pulling the trailer. Negative aspect: the hitch "head" is incredibly heavy(understandably), and a bit time consuming for the first installation. Not ment for use on multiple trucks, a there is A LOT of math and measuring involved. Read the instructions, watch the video on the website (which did appear to be edited for time constraints) Take the 30 or so mins to install, and adjust for haul vehicle, and leave set for THAT vehicle. Once you have it set up. I recommend you leave it set.

I bought this hitch to tow 3410 lbs DW travel trailer, it was definitely overcapacity (and heavy), but what caught my interest was how easy it is to adjust the spring bar force using a cam system. We have taken 9 trips since Feb 21 and I have no regrets or issues with this purchase. Easy setup and great towing control. I highly recommend considering the Curt TruTrack WD Hitch as an option.


Comments
If you are towing 3410 TW then yes you are over the 1000 TW capacity. If your trailer is 3410 lbs fully loaded, you are within the 10,000 range.

I bought and installed this hitch so my brother could pull my trailer across country. Installation was the Curt Tru track C17500 WDS on my 2017 Coachman Catalina Legacy Edition travel trailer, being pulled with a Ford F-150. This is the first experience I've had with installing and using a WDS. Instructions were clear and simple to follow, and after about 3 hours and going through various hitch tilt settings to get enough weight on the front axle, we were ready to go. I would have given a higher rating, but I did encounter a problem with the A-frame placement on the trailer tongue. With my tongue, it was impossible to place the A-frames at the required 4" from the end of the spring bar due to the cross support angle iron that holds my battery. At first, I tried placing the A-frames behind the angle iron, but that put them at only 3" from end of spring bar, causing the spring bar to slip out of the L-bracket on a tight turn. I ended up having to cut part of the angle iron away in order to move the A-frames far enough forward to keep this from happening. I'm just curious if others have had this same problem and if etrailer and/or Curt are aware of this potential issue, or if possibly I was sent the wrong hitch for this particular trailer. Seems to me that the spring bars should be a couple inches longer for this particular setup, to keep this from being an issue. We were on a tight schedule, so I didn't have time to contact customer service to help resolve this matter...so I just went ahead and modified the trailer as needed. Other than that, the system seems like it is going to work just fine... my brother left out today hauling the trailer from GA to AZ. We'll see how it goes.


Comments
Weight distribution systems are only specific to the tongue weight of a trailer, not to the design or the trailer make and model. Unfortunately, the sheer numbers of trailer makes and models would make it impossible to fit guide them correctly to provide fit information for specific trailers.

First off etrailer.com had a ton of information and the website was able to answer all my questions. My weight distribution hitch showed up fast and as described. Hitch was easy to install and worked exactly as described. I tow a 4000 pound camper with approx 400-800lbs of tongue weight depending on bed and camper load. I have a 2013 Toyota Tacoma. This hitch is easy to adjust and leveled the load. This hitch also allows backing up and that was a major selling point.

So far it is great. I probably need to adjust the setup as I replaced the China bombs with some larger "E" rated tires since I originally set it up. My wife and I worked meticulously to get the setup correct when we 1st got it. We have had no sway problems with it installed - I never have tried towing my travel trailer at highway speeds without it as my 2005 F-250's factory hitch receiver specifies it requires a weight distribution to tow my approximately 8000 lb. travel trailer.

Bought this equalizer/weight distribution hitch for my 24 foot enclosed car trailer so I could move my sister to her new home 500 mis south. Even though her packers overloaded the trailer and we had some windy bad weather,the hitch worked great! However bevaware that you need a 200 plus lb torque wrench to install the main bolts on the hitch. I had to buy a bigger wrench.

I am disappointed by the weight of the hitch head. When I spoke with e-trailer, I was looking for a lighter head than my Husky (40 pounds). This one is a full 60 pounds and is a brute to lift and maneuver. No way can I lift into storage compartment or back of my truck. I am figuring out a shoulder harness system-but be warned-it is VERY heavy. I did not want to pay the restocking fee or shipping back, so am giving it a try. If it proves to be too much for me to handle, I will sell it and get something with a lighter head It came very well packed and totally intact, but I was told 2 boxes and it was one box 118 pounds. That was a big challenge! Instructions are good and it was easy to get the ball to the correct height-again the head is very heavy as you are trying to get the correct hole on the shank. Extra hands would be helpful but I'm doing this on my own. In the process of installing on trailer and had to move relays and other stuff out of the way to mount the brackets. Picture shows what I had to move. It's about 34-35" back so keep that in mind. I have a narrow frame and the bolts provided are about 1.5" longer than needed. I went and got shorter bolts because they need to be removed when adjusting brackets for a different tow vehicle. Of course you will need deep sockets, and 2 large (1 1/8 I think) for the head I haven't used it yet but heading out on long trip so it will be tested. I'm rating it before testing-one star off for the weight and difficulty moving it. Not for anyone weak!

I bought this to replace an older style equalizer hitch (with the chain bars) and needed to add anti sway, which my old hitch did not have. Adding an anti sway bar to the old hitch would have cost a couple hundred $$ with welding and ball installation, so I opted to just start over. My application is a 24' (box length) 10000GVW toy hauler that was wagging from time to time. I have many years of towing experience with pull behinds and fifth wheels so I knew what I was looking for while shopping. I have had Curt hitches before and know that they are a quality product. The Equal-i-zer hitch was considered but it was more in cost. In the end, the mechanics of the Curt hitch were superior to the Equal-i-zer for less money. Installing the hitch was easy and took less than 2 hours. One adjustment was necessary to get the proper tension on the bars and adjust them to no more than 4" hangover on the bar tray, as well as level towing with the equalizer factor. There is no option but to get it installed correctly, so if you don't have any or limited experience with installing hitches, get help from a friend who has or get professional help. You don't want your camper flailing down the road or in the ditch because of improper hitch installation. First trip out on winding mountain roads with very windy conditions was excellent...no more wagging trailer...very impressed Backing the trailer in the campsite with relatively tight jack-knife potential angles was not a problem with no issues with the bars. I watched closely with these tight angles to make sure no problems were awaiting me, and no problems at all. Instructions recommend removing the bars with tight turning angles and that would be a good idea if the angles were were getting to extreme. So, I highly recommend this hitch for load equalization and anti sway. The Good: Easy to install Performs as expected The Bad: No torque specifications that I found for the bolts, so I just rompt on it with a breakover bar to get it tight. Installations instructions were about a C+ Hitch head itself is VERY heavy so be prepared to grunt and swear as you remove or reinstall it from your truck hitch.

I've owned this weight distribution hitch for a year now. Hauling travel trailers and 5th wheels professionally, I needed a unit that was dependable and one that would hold up to the rigorous demands of a professional hauler. Although the shipping box took a real beating during transit, miraculously everything was there. I would highly recommend this unit to all who pull a travel trailer to their vacation destinations. This unit will give you a stress free experience with no white knuckles while passing the big rigs on the highway. The trailer will follow a straight, true track behind you. Enjoy your driving experience.

It has been a good weight dist hitch, Did it’s job so far, the anti sway works very well. I would recommend the hitch. I only have one issue with it. The silver pieces with the pins that hold the hitch in position for whatever setting you’d like from 1-5 tend to bend if you use position 5. I bought a replacement set and they bent too. It doesn’t seem they will bend enough to come out, but you may want to keep a spare set of these just in case. The pin kind of tries to peal out of its hole part way

Ordered online and then made a second order. Called first thing in a.m. to have orders combined in order to save on shipping. Customer service was excellent. 3 to 5 Day Shipping arrived in 4 business days. Curt Tru Track works great. I cant believe the difference in towing. Smooth and straight as an arrow! The product was easy to put together and instructions were simple. I started putting it on at dusk and finished by the light of streetlight with no big issues. Easy to adjust! I installed this unit after talking to some professionals. They said going up on tongue weight is not a big issue. The Tru Track is rated for 1000lb GTW. My application is on Jeep Grand Cherokee with 500 lb tongue weight capacity and 5000lb Gross Tow Capacity. Havent tried all competitor brands but very happy with the product!

Not too difficult to setup, maybe with the exception of getting height/ball angle correct taking a couple of tries. Works great going down the road. Decent size bridge transitions aren't uncomfortable, and passing semi trucks don't produce hairy moments. Tips: Especially when tongue weight is high, use the trailers jack to raise truck rear-end and level trailer to make it easier to install the bars. It can be basically impossible to get them up on the trailer frame brackets without doing this. Many backing situations involve very tight turns. Take the bars off for this, or your frame brackets might get pushed around, and you could have to loosen and re-position. Even forward moving very tight turns could cause the same issues.

  • Compatibility of Curt TruTrack # C17500 Weight Distribution System with 9,000 lb Trailer
    Weight distribution systems are classified by the range of tongue weights they can handle. The Curt TruTrack, part # C17500 is rated for tongue weights ranging from 800-1000 lbs. Trailer tongue weights are usually from 10-15 percent of the loaded trailer weight. If you load your trailer to 9000 lbs, at 10 percent, you'd be at 900 lbs of tongue weight that would work just fine with that weight distribution system. Worst case, if you're closer to 15 percent, you could be overloading the system,...

    No, you will still set up the weight distribution system the same way you normally would if the truck did not have air bag suspension. If it was an automatic leveling system, what you would do is first couple the trailer and let the leveling system do its thing. Then you would install the springs bars. But for a system that requires you to manually add and remove air you would not have to change any installation steps.

You accomplish this by having the trailer out on level ground and then use the jack to raise/lower the nose of the trailer so that it sits as level as possible. From there you will measure from the bottom of the coupler down to the ground. Next you will need to measure from the top of the hitch opening on the tow vehicle down to the ground. Whatever the difference is the amount of rise/drop...

  • Weight Distribution for 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 and 6,000 Pound Trailer
    Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System # C17500 will likely work well for your trailer and 2006 Dodge Ram 1500. Since the dry weights are 6,000 pounds and 570 pounds the tongue weight of the trailer will increase once the trailer is loaded. As long as it does not exceed the 1,000 pounds capacity of the Curt system it will work. For weight distribution, tongue weight is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of...

  • Equal-I-Zer Weight Distribution Not Working as Well with 2014 Nissan Titan as it Did with GMC Sierra
    Since you now use the 2014 Nissan Titan to tow the trailer you will want to go back and set up the weight distribution again as if it were the first time. Different vehicles react differently to weight distribution and you may need to make a few adjustments and do some fine tuning so that the truck and trailer are level when towing. If you don't still have the installation instructions/manual for your system you can use the one I have linked for you. Once you have gone back and set it...

  • Can You Back a Trailer Up with the Curt TruTrack part # C17500 Installed
    With weight distribution systems like the Curt TruTrack part # C17500 you can back up as long as you are going mainly straight. If you are going to jackknife the trailer you would need to disconnect the bars.

  • Curt 1,000 Pound or Fastway 800 Pound Weight Distribution for a 7,000 Pound Travel Trailer
    First, the 636 pounds of tongue weight is the dry tongue weight and will increase once the trailer is loaded and ready to tow. Since the dry weight is 6,200 pounds and the dry tongue weight is 636 pounds that means that the tongue weight is 10.25 percent of the gross trailer weight. If the trailer weighs 7,000 pounds when loaded then the tongue weight will be in the neighborhood of 717 pounds. For weight distribution you also have to add the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle...

  • Comparing Curt TruTrack and Fastway e2 Weight Distribution for a 5,500 Pound Travel Trailer
    The Curt TruTrack and Fastway weight distribution systems are very similar. Fastway is the economy brand of Equal-I-zer so it has that going for it. Otherwise both offer built in sway control but the Curt system has sway control in the head and at the bars whereas the Fastway system is just at the bars. Based on this I would go with the Curt system # C17500.

  • Would Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System Fit Forest River Rockwood M-2701SS
    I pulled up pictures of your 2007 Forest River Rockwood M-2701SS and it appears to have a standard A-frame design which would easily fit with the Curt weight distribution system part # C17500. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for...

  • Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution Makes Noise when Taking Sharp Turns
    What you are hearing with your Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control - Trunnion - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW Item # C17500 is normal. Weight distribution systems with built-in sway control are noisy when turning because the sway control feature is providing resistance. Since this is a friction sway control system there is metal on metal contact so when it's working it will make noise.

  • Can Sway Control of Curt TruTrack be Turned So Far that it Falls Off of the Track
    If you were in a sharp enough turn to push the trunnions of the head on the Curt # C17500 out of the "valley" you wouldn't be going fast enough to have sway as that would be beyond jackknifed. Actually the system shouldn't ever be turned that sharp anyway. The only way it could get into that tight of a turn though is if you were backing up and really jackknifed it. This system would work well though as it is an active style of sway control unlike the others which are passive.

    Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control - Trunnion - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW Item # C17500 uses standard bolt sizes, not metric.

I have included a link to the installation instructions for you and a video review.

  • Weight Distribution for a 2015 Ford F-150 and 6,000 Pound Travel Trailer
    To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. For a 6,000 pound gross weight trailer the tongue weight would be around 600 to 900 pounds (10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight). The Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System # C17500 is rated for...

  • Would Weight Distribution Fix Trailer Sway That Starts when Cargo Carrier on Trailer is Loaded
    The sway you are experiencing is due to the additional weight behind your rear axle lightening the tongue weight of the trailer (like a teeter totter). Weight distribution might help a bit, but the best solution to fix the sway is going to be to move more weight forward in your trailer to offset the weight in the carrier. This will fix the sway whereas the WD system would be somewhat of a Band-Aid. Ideally you want to have your loaded trailer tongue weight to be 10-15 percent of the total...

  • Troubleshooting Weight Distribution System that Still Allows Suspension Sag
    One of two things are going on most likely.... You either are trying to tow a trailer that weighs too much for the capacity of your 2017 Toyota Tacoma or you are using a weight distribution system that is not properly rated for your trailer's tongue weight. Keep in mind that your tongue weight figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. Air bags would not be a solution to your problem and would more or less be a band aid. I looked up the towing...

    To safely remove the spring bars from the L-brackets on the Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System # C17500 you will first want to remove weight from the bars by using your jack to lift up the front of the trailer.
